“This is my life verse. To me, it means get quiet, don’t fret, and trust God knowing that He’s already got this – whatever “this’ might be.” -Wendy

Personal Information

Hi, my name is Wendy Skees. The children know me as the “cookie and pizza lady”. Oh, and I assist Christy in the office, keep the files, juggle lots of balls and run this website when I can.

Prior to coming to God’s Garden, I was a kindergarten teacher at Seffner Christian Academy for ten years. I thought I was just going to “take a break” from teaching for a year and then life got in the way. Sure am glad God brought me back into the world of children because that is where I’m happiest and most fulfilled.

I am so thankful for God’s Garden and the ministry it provides families and young children.

I have 2 incredible adult daughters – Cresent and Gaby, a wonderful son-in-law – Mat, and an awesome granddaughter who makes my heart sing – Lilia.

What I love about God's Garden:

Being a part of these children's lives and watching them grow. I also appreciate the actual facility. It is so clean and spacious and has a great vibe - thanks to Christy and our family of awesome teachers.

My fun fact about God's Garden:

Christy does impressions - a couple of times she had me in tears from laughing so hard.

What Parents Say...


Love this school!

Both my boys go to this school and I love everything about it!


Nothing better out there!

I could go on and on about how much we LOVE this preschool! My little girl is always so excited to go and runs right up to all the teachers and staff when she gets there (which makes it a little easier on her momma and daddy to leave her) She is learning new things daily and is talking up a storm about all her friends! Can't wait for her brother to join her next year! ♡♡♡


The Best Preschool

I know our baby is in the most nurturing hands and our 4 year old is so excited everyday to get to go here!
